This Parisian Palace Was Once Home to Royalty — and Now You Can Book a Room With Views of the Eiffel Tower
Plus, you’ll score hundreds of dollars worth of cool perks.
The Eiffel Tower views, the indulgent French pastries, the quaint homes lining cobblestone streets — it’s hard not to have a magical time on a trip to Paris. But if you’re traveling from afar and hoping to return home with truly unforgettable memories of the City of Light, a stay in an actual Parisian palace may be up your alley. And if you book now through Skylark, you can snag some extra perks throughout your stay.
The elegant Shangri-La Hotel on the quieter west side of Paris was originally built in the late 1800s as a glitzy home for Prince Roland Bonaparte, the grand-nephew of Napoleon. Re-opened as a hotel in 2010, it now boasts an indoor pool (a space that was once a stable for Prince Roland’s horses), restored grand salons, and 101 spacious-yet-cozy guest rooms. The former royal residence sits directly across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower, meaning half of the rooms feature picturesque, close-up views of the monument that may or may not have been the motivation behind your whole trip. If that doesn’t strike your fancy, maybe the quick 15-minute taxi ride to the Louvre will.
The location and palace interior alone are enough to make any traveler swoon — but it’s the special gifts and services guests can access through Skylark that really takes a Shangri-La stay into luxury territory. Skylark perks at the hotel include a $100 food and beverage credit, daily breakfast for two, complimentary one-way airport transfer (for guests staying in suites), and more. In total, Shangri-La guests will receive more than $385 worth of perks when they use Skylark to reserve their room. And to stay in a palace that once housed a French prince, we’d say it’s a pretty royal deal!
